Year 8 Outward Bound

Year 8 students have had a fantastic personal development course at the Outward Bound Centre in Aberdovey, Wales.  Despite some pretty challenging weather, our students showed true resilience and truly pushed themselves out of their comfort zones – which is what the week is all about!  Favourite activities included gorge walking, canoe slides, abseiling, rock scrambling and staying at the cabins.  The response from our students has been overwhelmingly positive and it was great to hear how much they think they have learned about themselves – from developing their teamwork, making new friends and realising that they can do much more than they think they can!  The challenge now is to transfer this to their lives back at school and at home!
